Cycling in Monaco

Monaco In A Nutshell

Monaco isn't so much a touring option as an oddity to tick off and then escape westwards into lovely Provence or eastwards to the equally attractive Piedmont. Still, if you're impressed by often tacky, conspicuous displays of wealth, you'll love it.

Where and When I Went

Map of Monaco

24th April 2012

Monaco's Scenery

There's a harbour with some big boats in it. Now back on your bike!


Monaco's Road Quality

Stunning. Their tunnels have roundabouts inside. Mental!

Monaco's Accommodation & Costs

Ha! I didn't stop. In 2013, TripAdvisor told me that a night at the Hotel de Paris would cost €522. It'll be more now.


Given its international nature, I'd have thought you'll be alright with English.

Neighbouring Countries

France. That's your lot.

Reasons To Go To Monaco

To weep either jealously or at how the 1% choose to splash their cash, to blow a fiver in the casino (better bring a change of clothes).
